    Okay, well.. it used to work. But for what ever reason now it won't.

    My NTSC region Tales of Symphonia DOTNW won't load and my real NTSC copy of PSO Episode 3 won't load any more.

    All other PAL games work.. I don't have any other NTSC games to test with, all I know is.. they used to work.
    I got region free using the softmii hacks, but even with just the star fall hacks it doesn't want to work.

    The games will show up on the disk channel then just crash. I hope I make sense. -.-;

    Edit: Also, I've never gone above E3.3 version 1.. I downgraded to E3.2 sometime ago though. But region free worked then.. :/

    Do yourself a favour and use only the cIOS from waninkoko and use the SoftChip or Gamma.
    SoftMii sucks and like you see it makes more problems as it helps.

    Okay then.. So should I clean install 3.2 again and do that??

    Edit: And one more thing I forgot about... A skies of arcadia legends back up of mine just makes the wii reset now... It didn't do that in an older version of the GC Backup launcher. Where can I find old versions? >.>;

    Softmii does not suck. nIxx said that because he bricked his Wii with Softmii.

    Start Softmii again from Phase 2, the downgrade phase.

    If problem persists, your disc drive is going bad.

    What can I do if my drive really is going bad? :/

    PAL games work flawlessly.. even brawl. I can't see how it's going back.. I've gone back to the downgrade phase a few times now.

    Send it to Nintendo to repair or buy a new Wii

    Did that like a year ago after the motors went funny before.. (Spitting disks out). But seriously, it does play the NTSC games if I go through the Gamma loader, except the GC ones (Obviously.. it being a wii loader. -.- )

    So how is that the drive going bad? :/ I'd just like NTSC games to load through the disk channel like they used to... if not, some kind of work around for the GC games like I have for the backup NTSC ones, but then that's only for backups.. something for real ones to would be nice. >
